Also known as Marge, she started her career in ASL instruction by teaching ASL for RITSign and tutoring ASL to Interpreting students during her undergraduate study at RIT. ASL became her interest for further study. She entered the MSSE program with a focus on teaching ASL. Her experience in teaching includes various high schools and an after school program in the Rochester area.

Her graduate capstone project focused on true perceptions of ASL by non-users. She continues to research this area.
